Rodney Parade (Dragons) Rodney Parade is a stadium in the city of Newport, South Wales in the United Kingdom. It is primarily used for rugby matches and is the home ground of Newport RFC and Newport Gwent Dragons. The stadium has a maximum capacity of 11,700 people. In 1875 the Newport Athletic Club was created, and two years later they secured the use of land at Rodney Parade from Lord Tredegar for their cricket, tennis, rugby and athletics teams. On September 4, 2007 it was announced that Rodney Parade is due to be redeveloped into a 15,000 capacity ground by the beginning of the 2010 season. The cricket ground no longer exists as the ground was sold and Maindee primary school was built on the site. Once the redevelopment is complete, the athletics track will be sold for housing.
